HESTER by Asger Carlsen [SIGNED]

ニューヨークを拠点とするデンマーク人フォトグラファー、アスガー・カールセン(Asger Carlsen)の作品集。前作「WRONG」(2010刊)に続いて同出版社から2作目となる本作では、フランシス・ベーコンやシュルレアリスムから影響を受け、ヌード写真に対する新たな見方が示されている。

Following the phenomenal success of Wrong, what could possibly topple the notion of truth and further question the photographic medium with all its tongue in cheek gusto and humorous horror. To answer, Asger brings us Hester, his honest take on the classic theme of the female nude. If the traditional nude occasionally intends to bare and reveal a final and ideal form through ad hoc stance or sculptural immortality, Asger revises the study of the female form to ultimately reveal the evolving terrain of photography and its standards of aesthetics and morality. If Wrong aimed to dismantle the gullibility of the photographic subject matter and level all notions of truth, Hester aims to level the historical ideals in the nude and the ultimate beguiling craftsmanship utilized to achieve this ideal.
